A SCHOOL will begin a consultation process on the future of its post 16 provision.

Governors at Dyson Perrins Church of England Academy in Yates Hay Road, Malvern have decided to begin a consultation process over the Sixth Form's future, which could mean no sixth formers will be starting this September.

In a letter to parents, headteacher Mike Gunston said: "You may be aware that numbers in our Sixth Form are low and reducing for a number of years.

"A small sixth form poses a significant challenge to retain the breadth of courses that our students wish to study.

"There are a number of strong Post-16 providers locally so we are confident that our students will be able to access the courses they wish to study.

"Students in Year 12 and year 13 will continue as planned."

The school will be holding a meeting for parents on Wednesday, February 26 at 6.00pm
